Springboard is an initiative by the Irish government and the European Social Fund to help people retrain and enter a sector of the workforce in need of qualified people. Each course offered is on a part-time basis requiring between five to six hours work per week. Springboard courses can last up-to twelve months and cover certificates up to masters level programmes.
Each course in the Springboard programme is either free or subsidised for eligible jobseekers. Currently, springboard programmes aim to help people reskill to work in financial services, business start-ups and high level manufacturing.
At Innopharma, our springboard courses provide people with the skills to start a new career in the food science, pharmaceutical or medical device sector.

"Innopharma's given me great confidence to know that you can go from one career to a completely different career. Before I sat my exams, I had three job offers which was fantastic, so it just goes to show that it really works."
Laura Mac Carthy, Level 6 Pharma Graduate working at Amgen
"I was made redundant and found that my skills were out of date. I decided to complete The Higher Diploma in Food Science and Technology to try to update my skills as I had previous food experience. I completed the course and have since found full time employment."
Laura O'Dricoll, Level 8 Food Science Graduate working at Irish Bacon Slicers
“Innopharma is the first step that you need to take to get people to know you and speak with you. You will get invited to interviews which normally you would not. You get a lot of confidence from a broad spectrum of topics from customer and technical services to regulatory affairs and GMP.”
